Servings1 serving


  • 8 oz Brewed Coffee.
  • 2 scoops Ice Cream. Straight up vanilla is the most traditional but try different flavors for a fun twist!
  • Whipped Cream.
  • Shaved Chocolate


  • Brew an 8 oz cup of coffee and chill it in the freezer for about 15 minutes until very cold.
  • Add the ice cream to your large mug or glass.
  • Pour chilled coffee on top of the ice cream.
  • Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
  • Enjoy immediately!


To make this a German Coffee Cocktail simply add brandy to the coffee prior to chilling it. I recommend an ounce of brandy per serving.
